Evan Ferguson (Brighton Hove Albion), a rising striker in the Premier League, has been mentioned as a replacement for Harry Kane, the flagship striker who left Tottenham Hotspur in the English Premier League.
Tottenham legend Gary Lineker tweeted on the 13th (Korean time), “Ferguson scores in ‘Fergie Time’. He is a natural goalscorer.” said.
He added: “I apologize to the Brighton and Hove Albion fans.”
Ferguson, who made his name known by scoring 18 goals in 39 matches as a member of the Brighton under-21 team in 2021, played the Premier League in earnest last season, and played 19 matches in the Premier League alone, making a big success with 6 goals and 2 assists. Born in 2004, this is a achievement achieved at the age of 17.
And in the 2023-24 season Premier League opener against Luton Town on the 12th, he was substituted in the 83rd minute of the second half when he was leading 3-1 and started scoring in extra time.
His performance in the Premier League earned him a promotion to the Ireland national team, and he scored two goals in six matches, including his debut goal against Latvia.
The striker’s performance, born in 2004, naturally attracted the attention of big clubs, and not only Tottenham but also Manchester United showed interest in Ferguson.
However, Brighton extended the contract with Ferguson until 2028 by renewing it in March.
This is the reason why teams that were aiming to sign Ferguson during last season, such as Manchester United and Tottenham, withdrew their footing.
The current market value of Ferguson, set by Transfermarkt, is 30 million euros.
Tottenham are looking for a striker in the summer transfer window to fill the void left by Kane’s move to Bayern Munich. According to Spanish media AS, Tottenham has decided to invest more than 50 million euros in signing the striker.먹튀검증
